Foodworks, the enterprise initiative comprising of Bord Bia, Enterprise Ireland and Teagasc, is set to launch some new food and drink products. Dairy free ice-cream, biodegradable chewing gum, premium Irish vodka and sustainable seafood butter are just some of this year’s launches.
Launched in 2012, the Foodworks programme aims to encourage and support Irish entrepreneurs who want to be part of Ireland’s growing food and drink industry. Over the past two years, the programme has assisted and mentored a total of 43 start-ups producing dairy, snacks, meat, seafood and beverages.
The Food Works team is now recruiting for next year's programme and over the coming months, Bord Bia, Enterprise Ireland and Teagasc will run a series of ‘drop in clinics’ nationwide to assist potential participants with their applications.
